  1. A creative person’s guide to thoughtful promotion | “A guide by artist and creative strategist Kathryn Jaller with illustrations by Molly Fairhurst.”
  2. Sleep When You’re Tired | “Updated a piece I did 10 years ago (!!!) to reflect my current views on workaholism and brag-complaining about all-nighters. First image is the update, 2nd is the original from back in 2009.”

A single dose of psilocybin enhances creative thinking and empathy up to seven days after use, study finds | “In the last decade, there has been a renewed scientific interest in the utility of psychedelics. Increasing evidence suggests that psychedelics like psilocybin may have potential therapeutic value for disorders like anxiety, depression, and PTSD…”
  4. The Mona Lisa’s distribution of pixels | “Just wanted to have a take on the Mona Lisa. The highest valuation held by a painting in the world! What makes it so valuable? The skill, the art, the history, the theft case?”
  5. Plans Matter | “When we plan our travel, we search for places to stay that are well designed and authentic. Places that will elevate our experience beyond keeping us warm and dry. Places that have architectural intention and a story to tell. Our goal is to make these places easily available for people to experience on their own. We created PlansMatter as a place for guests who value exceptional design to find and connect with hosts who have invested in extraordinary architecture.”
  6. Why walking is the most underrated form of exercise | “Science shows that placing one foot in front of the other leads to some seriously impressive mental and physical benefits.”
  7. The World Wide Web turns 30: our favorite memories from A to Z | “On this day 30 years ago [March 12], Tim Berners-Lee submitted a proposal with the dreary title “Information Management” to his superior at the European physics laboratory CERN.”
  8. The web we broke. | “At the end of February, WebAIM published an accessibility analysis of the top one million home pages. The results are, in a word, abysmal.”
  9. Regarding the Thoughtful Cultivation of the Archived Internet | “With 20+ years of archives, I’ve been thinking about this issue as well. There are many posts in the archive that I am not proud of. I’ve changed my mind in some cases and no longer hold the views attributed to me in my own words. I was too frequently a young and impatient asshole, full of himself and knowing it all. I was unaware of my privilege and too frequently assumed things of other people and groups that were incorrect and insensitive. I’ve amplified people and ideas in the past that I wouldn’t today.”
  10. | “My life has been dramatically improved since I figured out typing in the Chrome address bar creates a new Google Doc.”
